lyrics

Something to do on a Saturday
Look in the mirror
Apply the face
And frown
Too cold for the shops this Saturday
No one to call and no one to come around

A face for the world to see
Seems like a simple dream to me
But not on this Saturday
Life’s never seemed so far away, away...

And I wish that life could be
A Hollywood album
Like a book of perfect memories
But I don’t think so...
And I wish that life could be
A suburban postcard
Just the rain outside my window
But I know it’s not to be
It’s not for me

Tell me, do people run out of luck?
Walk to the kitchen, refill the cup
No pun intended
All just thoughts on a rainy day
The hours run dry
The fun has ended

A face for the world to know
Seems like a simple goal
On Monday
But not on this Saturday
My skin’s never seemed so pale and grey, away...

And I wish that life could be
A Hollywood album
Like a book of perfect memories
But I don’t think so...
And I wish that life could be
A suburban postcard
Just the rain outside my window
But I know it’s not to be
It’s not for me

And I wish that life could be
A Hollywood album
Like a book of perfect memories
But I don’t think so...
And I wish that life could be
A suburban postcard
Just the rain outside my window
But I know it’s not to be
It’s not for me
